A Barrett & Coe Photography Franchise differs from many other franchises in the volume of sales it provides to studios from national contracts.
This will usually be between 60-70% of turnover, thus ensuring that a new franchisee has a steady flow of appointments in their diary upon commencement of their franchise. Managing Director Elaine Sheppard, who has unrivalled experience in marketing portrait studios, gives advice and personal support with the equally important local marketing, which supplies further sales in addition to national contracts.
We have national contracts in place with:
